BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): You don't see a lot of people who are seeking power attempting to ape conservatives, like pretend to be a conservative. You don't see that a lot. You don't see a lot of people, who want power, attempting to be white. You don't have reverse Rachel Dolezals. That is an indicator of where power lies in a society, right? During Jim Crow it was a fairly common and horrific thing -- I mean horrifically that anybody felt that they needed to do this -- that light skinned Black people would sometimes try to pass for white, right? This was a very, very -- there have been a number of famous novels on this particular topic -- because white was power for a lot of American history.
Well now, there are not a lot of Black people masquerading as white people, but you will see a Rachel Dolezal attempting to be Black. And here you'll see a professor pretending to be a bisexual Native American woman. The halls of power are replete with the diversity crew and that is where people are attempting to pander in order to get ahead. Which says something about where America stands. It doesn't say that America's deeply intolerant of diversity. It says precisely the opposite - that we are so militantly in favor of diversity that we will swallow any stupid thing put forth so long as you slap a diversity label on it.
